Athena X Levendi took to social media to reveal that she's been struggling with depression, despite her over the top personality on The Real Housewives of Sydney. The Foxtel reality star got candidly about her battle with depression.

"I am tiered of social Media and how everyone is always having this incredible "time" .. edited and staged just for that perfect upload and the many "Likes" .. Sadly enough even I've fallen into this trap at times and find myself trying to take the "perfect" snap."

 She continued: "But that's not REAL life ...perfect Lives and perfect moments are not Picture Perfect and why should they; .Seriously we all know the truth ,life has its ups & downs .No one looks like their Instagram photos without that filter ...."

"Then we are told that feeling sad or being Depressed is "Weak" or something we have to Snap out of quickly ,especially from friends and family who don't understand that some of us just feel Blue sometimes ...," she explained. "Usually, people think that I’m a strong, happy person..but behind my smiles and provoking laughter .. they just don’t know how much I’m in pain and almost broken.."

"Behind my smile is a aching heart, behind my laugh I’m hiding sadness . Look closely at me and you will see, the girl with the oh so perfect dress is "oh so very sad...at times."

"I smile not for that I am happy, but sometimes I smile to make others happy," she added. "Creative and sensitive people feel Blue often because everything they experience is heightened. So my beautiful Instagram friends 'I wanted to share a real feeling with you a Real moment and tell you that it's ok for everything not to be Perfect. Reflecting on 2017 #NAMASTE #toknowthyself #spiritualgoddess #athenaxturf #rhos"
